Gotta admit. I wasn't a huge fan of the iPhone version 1. I was one of the lemmings that stood in line in burlingame, CA to get my iPhone v1 after gmsmith convinced me to get one. I could deal with the lack of an SDK by certain...shall we say...work arounds? Well, when I did an iPhone updaate, and it wiped the...work arounds...I had installed, I was angry.
Well, my love affair with the iPhone didn't last long. I got one of those AT&T/Apple surveys, and I told them that I thought that the iPhone was like a beautiful girl with absoluely no personality. Georgous phone, but I just couldn't do what I needed to do with it.
I broke my contract, and decided to get a BlackBerry 8800 World edition. I liked the BlackBerry's java-based software, and I found Verizon's coverage better than AT&T's.
Zimbra for BlackBerry works fantastic on it... Since then, my BlackBerry died of a data-overdose (actually, it died because of an ill-fated first try at a home-brew j2me application), and I moved onto Windows Moble 6 on my HTCV XV6800. What a peice of Junk this is! Using Windows Mobile on this phone is sorta like using MS Exchange. It crashes, is SUPER slow, and dang it: It never does what I want it to. I lost my stylus, so now I have to use my pinky finger.
One time, I got a phone call, and I hit answer on the touch screen, and it just froze. I later found out that people could hear me screaming at my phone, but I couldn't hear them.
Plus the lack of a good browser, and J2ME VM really makes me angry.
So, tomorrow morning, I will call in sick*, and go get an iPhone 3G. I miss it, and sort of feel like I've been in a fight with my girlfriend, only to get back together tomorrow.
What about you? Are you getting an iPhone 3G? Is it all hype to you? Got a cool story? Best story will win a tshirt, and maybe my HTC old phone...Although it may not be all in one peice by then.
